405 AM CDT Fri Sep 30 2016
Clear skies prevailed across the state through the night allowing
temperatures to fall around 20 degrees from their daytime highs,
into the 40s to mid 50s.
Most will see sunny skies to start the day, but will eventually be
replaced by overcast skies as a large low pressure system meanders
out of Kentucky and up into the Illinois-Indiana area. Light rain
and sprinkles will be possible, primarily over the eastern third
of the state, as the day progresses. With the cloud cover rolling
in, highs will be a bit cooler than yesterday, primarily in the
upper 60s to low 70s.
The weekend will see cloud cover stick around through part of
Sunday, helping keep high temperatures mid 60s to low 70s. Sunny
skies and southerly winds will return to start the work week,
boosting temperatures into the mid and upper 70s. By mid-week
though, a cold front will push through bringing cooler
temperatures and a chance for storms, with a few possibly severe.
